  • 18.
    Good without evil is imperfect just as evil is without good, we make our decisions in life and unless we've failed when it matters, we don't know the price of what doing wrong is. There is no good without evil, and there is no evil without good. An omnipotent force is neutral and so, the ideal is found in both good and evil or more so in the understanding that nothing is perfect. You can't understand the depths of what a simple good act means without seeing and comprehending the depravity and inhumanity that people are capable of; it is really evil that makes good matter
    (good, evil, life)
